The conselleria invests 2 million euros in remodeling the station and the platform of the tranviarizació.
Dénia puts the carpet on the train. The last 400 meters are finished. The Conselleria de Residencias, Obras Públicas y Vertebración del Territorio, while on its way from Calp, has remodelled the Dénia station and completed the first 400 metres of platform of this train that will enter the city by tram. The councillor María José Salvador and the councillor, Vicent Grimalt, walked that last stretch. The train will take time to do it. It will be well into 2019 when line nine will start running again from end to end. Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV) suspended the trains between Calp and Dénia on July 27th, two thousand and sixteen. The modernisation works are on schedule. At the end of the year, the stretch to Teulada will be finished. The councilor assured that then the projects will be advanced to tender the works of the stretch that will remain until Dénia. Similarly, work will commence at that time on the second phase of the tramway platform, which eliminates the barrier that already existed between Denia and Montgó with the walls and track.
New Train on Dénia
Salvador explained that the modernization and first phase of the tramway (the last 400 meters of the train) cost a couple of million euros. Completing the tramway platform raises another 2.5 million. We have integrated the train urbanistically and removed the wall that already existed. The trains must connect, but here there was a barrier,”said the councillor.
The new platforms have been adapted to the new diesel-electric dual carriages. The jacarandas have been removed and, instead, much more modest trees have been planted. The station, which is modern, was leaking. The roof has now been waterproofed and the walls have been cleaned.
In addition to the station in Dénia, the regional government has renovated the station in Teulada, Gata, Alfàs del Pi and Benidorm. These works have increased to 6.4 million euros.
